ALVTechnologies Philippines Incorporated proudly supported and co-presented the Department of Science and Technology – Niche Centers for R&D in the Regions (DOST-NICER) Advanced Batteries Center’s 1st Battery Symposium on November 7, 2022, at Microtel by Wyndham UP Technohub.
With the theme, “𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗴𝗲: 𝗧𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗦𝘁𝗼𝗰𝗸 𝗼𝗳 𝗥𝗲𝗰𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗗𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹𝗼𝗽𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗔𝗴𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗕𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀,” the symposium gathered students, researchers, and experts to cultivate battery research in the country.
The Advanced Batteries Center (ABC) is a collaborative Research and Development Program between Technological Institute of the Philippines (TIP) and University of the Philippines Diliman (UPD) which focuses on innovating different battery chemistries.
